The Maiden in the MirrorMature

INT. ROXY'S HOUSE-ROXY'S ROOM - LATE MORNING

 ROXY, a tall pretty brunet is sleeping in her bed. The CLOCK on her BEDSIDE TABLE reads Ten thirty-three.

ROXY wakes slowly. Her feet miss her slipper as she sits up, she doesn’t care enough to put them on.

 INT. ROXY’S HOUSE-BATHROOM

 ROXY is standing barefoot in front of the SINK running the faucet, waiting for the water to warm. There is a MIRROR above the sink.

 In the mirror above the sink ROXY’s REFLECTION looks up and STARES CREEPILLY at ROXY.

ROXY unnerved looks up and frowns at the mirror. It takes her a moment to realize her REFLECTION is sinister.

The REFLECTION tilts its head to one side.

 ROXY GASPS but before she can jump back the REFLECTIOIN has broken through the mirror, SHATTERING the glass, and strangles ROXY.

 ROXY falls limp to the floor.

 The REFLECTION here on out known DEMON climbs out of the mirror and dumps ROXY’s body into the mirror.

 The mirror heals itself and solidifies once more.

 DEMON has not reflection in the mirror.

 INT. ROXY'S HOUSE-ROXY'S ROOM

 DEMON is a flipped image of ROXY and she is dressed and tying up her boots.

 ROXY’s cellphone, on the bedside table, RINGS ‘Dixie’.

 DEMON looks at the caller ID, HANNAH, it reads. She answers the phone.

 DEMON

Hello?

HANNAH (O.S)

 DEMON

 HANNAH (O.S)

(Annoyed)

 DEMON glances over at her clock on the bedside table.

 INT. TOM’S DINNER-DAY

 HANNAH, a relatively hot red head, is sitting in a booth of an old country dinner.

 HANNAH

 INTERCUT - CELLPHONE CONVERSATION

 

DEMON

DEMON looks around silently for what HANNAH could mean.

 HANNAH

DEMON

 Catches her tone

(in a softer tone)

I’m just half a sleep. Where is it again?

 

HANNAH
